Duffy, former mayor of Rochester, describes himself as a lifelong fan of the Bills. He says the team is the only true New York State team.

In a tweet, the Lt. Governor cautions any potential owners against trying to move the Buffalo Bills. He feels it would be a public relations disaster on top of the $400 million purchase price.

He says the Bills have the most loyal fans in the NFL and tells potential owners: “Don’t pick this fight.”

Duffy even specifically cautioned Jon Bon Jovi, telling the rocker, “You will lose fans/all of WNY forever. Not worth it.”

After saying he’s met Bon Jovi and calling him a nice guy, the Lt. Governor tweeted out a photo of a shirt he said he received recently that says, “Bon Jovi Free Zone,” which was started by a group calling for a Bon Jovi ban in Buffalo. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
